It is not possible to unilaterally grant a global right; that would permit runaway grants as a DOS attack. Instead the grant is made locally (as a transient grant as part of a portal call), with an attached right that lets the grantee persist the grant for itself.

This (and much more about granting) will be in one of our next two talks; not sure which one at this point.
